Research Interests

My long term research interests involve the development of a comprehensive understanding of key behavioral pathways and how alterations in gene expression and proteins contribute to animal welfare as well as development and validation of welfare assessment methods. For my postdoctoral training, I will continue to build on my previous training in animal behavior and welfare by moving deeply into these aspects that will allow me to address additional questions for public.
